#137 closed enhancement (fixed)

Option to switch to stored identity in save identity dialog

Reported by: mozkeith2@… Owned by: rene
Version: 0.6.0pre1 Keywords:


Hi there,

There may be a way to do this, but if not, I'd like to request it as an enhancement for the future.

For certain people, I often change my identity to another address. But sometimes, I forget. When that happens, and I hit send, I'm prompted with a dialog that says "You already have a Virtual Identity stored for this recipient." It then asks me if I want to store the given identity, or cancel (which does nothing and sends the mail with the identity I selected).

What I would like is to have a THIRD button on here to CHANGE to using the stored identity. This would save me the added step of hitting cancel, changing the identity, and sending again.

I think, realistically, that button should change the identity automatically but GO BACK to the message, rather than continuing with the send. Although for my use case, having it continue with sending the message with the change would be okay, changing the identity can change other aspects of the message body, like the signature. If you change the identity through this dialog and continue to send, then that change may not happen, and/or the user doesn't get a chance to make further edits to the message.

So basically the third button is the equivalent of hitting cancel, and selecting the stored identity automatically. It seems like a good compromise, and even though it only saves one mouse click, it's a big one that can easily get overlooked.

Hi Keith,

sounds like a good point, thinking of a way to implement this (another option?). It will be part of the next 0.6 pre-release.

Thanks for the idea, nice regards,
